Communicating with The Queen
The Queen and all members of the royal family have private secretaries who deal with their correspondence.
For the address of The Queen's Private Secretary, see box below.
Unless you are personally known to the Sovereign, any letter to The Queen should be addressed to 'The Private Secretary to Her Majesty The Queen'. There is no need to address the private secretary by name, but if there is subsequent correspondence this should be addressed to the actual writer of the reply.
